Catch of the Day

Discussion created by ohheythere on Apr 13, 2013

15 years old and shaking, nervously anticipating the ball, measuring the wind, watching the ball get bigger and bigger in the outfield, preparing my enormous glove against a blindingly sunny sky. Raised my hand like I was taught, shielded the sun, knees bent, feet planted. The eyes of my parents and classmates on me, the weight of self-pressure growing, the chance to impress everyone or no one with a thing as slight as catching a spinning ball. How did we get so moment-obsessed? I caught it though.
